Ultimate 5/3/1 takes the math out of the 5/3/1 program so you can focus on getting stronger. Everything is planned out for you. Know exactly what you need to do as soon as you step into the gym. Ultimate 5/3/1 automatically calculates all your sets so you can focus on hitting new Personal Records.

Planning and tracking a 5/3/1 program is time consuming and hard. You have to calculate your training max and then calculate every single set based on your training max. It doesn't have to be like that. You could just walk into the gym everyday knowing exactly what you need to lift. Ultimate 531 takes the math out of the 5/3/1 program so you can focus on getting stronger and hitting new PRs.

Every cycle you have to redo the entire planning process, but not anymore! With one button press you can create a new cycle with all the weights automatically calculated for you.

If you haven't hit your ultimate strength goals yet then maybe it's because you have to spend so much time at the gym calculating weights for each set. Stop wasting your precious energy. Just plug in your numbers to Ultimate 5/3/1 and go.

For the serious lifter there are some excellent features when you subscribe to the Pro version. Unlock over 35+ 5/3/1 templates along with the ability to edit an existing template. If you really know what you are doing you can build your own template from scratch.

The 5/3/1 program is amazing for strength gains but energy and time is wasted trying to figure out what plates you need for each set. In the upgraded Pro version you get a Plate Calculator so you focus on the things that matter.

Getting stronger is about putting in the work every week but it's hard to see the progress you are making. The Pro version includes graphs of your one-rep maxes over time. Feel confident knowing you are doing the right things and making progress.

If you are the type of person that likes to track everything the Pro version also includes the ability to add and track Joker sets and assistance exercises.

Free Features:
- Plan an entire 5/3/1 cycle with one button press
- Alerts when you hit a new Personal Record (PR)
- Automatically increases your one-rep maxes when you hit a new PR

This is the way...

If you are a follower of the 5/3/1 program, this app makes your workouts idiotproof. In fact, I’d even say that even if you aren’t into 5/3/1 this has to be the best workout app out there.
It’s very easy to “plug and play” with the loaded templates, as well as the unlimited ways you can customize/build your own templates from the ground up.
The developer; Jimmy, continually keeps up and improves the app and is very approachable and communicative if you have questions or problems with it.
Try it and see, you will not be disappointed.

Thank you 🙏

It’s ok

One thing I don’t like is that you can’t customize the days from the template. The 5/3/1 template is great for instance but I would never do a squat day followed by a back day and chest day followed by a military press day. That’s asking for injury, but there’s no way to rearrange day 1 from 2 or 3 to what fits your needs. I also highly dislike apps that want you to pay monthly or annually instead of a one time payment. One time payment for something I can justify but would never pay monthly for a program like this. I’d rather use paper and a pencil like I was before. Personally I wouldn’t pay more than $8 to unlock pro features of this app. I just don’t care and don’t think it’s worth my time. I think there’s other better apps out there for price and customization.

I appreciate you taking the time to leave a review. If you’re not interested in a subscription, there are quite a few other 5/3/1 apps within the App Store you should check out. I’d recommend trying “531 strength”.

I chose to charge a small monthly fee for the pro features because it’s the only way to ethically sustain an app that costs time/money to develop. I don’t show any advertisements and I will never sell your data, unlike other apps. I’m also not going to abandon this app. I’m in it for the long haul!

Best 531 tracking app available!

Love this app. Developer is responsive to feedback and continually improves it. I love the availability of so many templates from the program and the ability to still tweak and adjust them as Wendell would suggest.

It’s not a substitute for buying the books. But between owning a few of Wendler’s books and my subscription to this app, I have everything I need to push continuous progress and gains for the foreseeable future.
